cliff deal done. with plan b failing pretty miserably, a lot of traders can't see a scenario where this can get done. you can bet they're going to see what the president is going to say because that is a major market lower. look at oil, this morning we are above 90. yesterday looks like we are on our way, demand should be getting better and economy getting better and throw everything out of the garbage, we are down $1.56. what adds to the negative momentum is reports from the petroleum institute, the month of november, u.s. petroleum use was at a 17 year low. that is minuscule to what we were doing during the years a few years ago. futures are down today rallying quite a bit. u.s. gasoline use is up until this year at the lowest level since 2001. that is a pretty incredible number. oil production in the u.s. is at the highest level since 1995 so we have more production. less demand, and that is weighing on prices. we are a futures markets. we have been rallying, and if we go off of the cliff very bearish. cheryl: thank you so much. john boehner gaining plan b from the house floor d

we should see. you say we should see will "les miserables." >> this is one -- i consider this movie to be a cinematic revolution. the fact that they're singing live. this is such a huge deal for movies because most musicals have a recorded sound track. so the actors prerecord it three or four months prior. by being able to sing live, they're able to change their emotions and not be married to the prerecord vocals. i sat down with anne hathaway and i talked to her about this benefit of singing live and is this thank is what she had to say. >> i remember at the end of the second day of the lovely ladies of the tooth pulling thinking, oh, god, that was as far as i had intended to go with my performance and i haven't sung. i have no idea what tomorrow will bring. so all this preparation -- i had to build on it kind of in the moment and if we recorded many months prior to that, then of course i wouldn't have been able to do that. >> brian: she attractive in person? >> i definitely think so. i love anne hathaway. i think she's absolutely gorgeous. in the movie, she's so phenomenal and it'

the concept of not being a right to work state. they tried to enshrine that failed miserably and the governor said you made this an issue now and we are going to make it an issue and we are going to support this bill. it seems clear to me this is going to pass today. he is not going to sign it today but despite what you are hearing out here is probably done deal. stuart: are they trying to block legislators from getting in? jeff: we see no evidence of that at this point. no evidence of it. people on this freedom path. no violence. stuart: we will stay with it. jeff flock in the middle of it. i want you to listen to what president obama said yesterday about this issue in michigan. >> we need to do everything we can to encourage companies to keep investing in american workers. by the way, what we shouldn't do, and what we shouldn't be doing is trying to take away your right to bargain.

growth real quick. a couple numbers. even with the miserable growth we've experienced from 2009 to 2012, you know how much revenue has increased to the federal government per year? $344 billion. if we just return to a normal economy, where we have revenue generation, which is average, at 18.5%, that would add another $434 billion per year. add those up that's more than $750 billion and president obama's punish success scheme would raise somewhere between 74 and 35 it's 10% -- here's the problem -- >> bring the soldiers back from korea. what are they doing there? how about japan? how do we cut the defense budget now? >> jim, i'm not disagreeing with you. >> what's the -- >> first audit of the defense firms we don't even know where the money is being spent. i'm not disagreeing with you on defense. you want to really attack what's going to be an explosion in costs, it's brom ma care. obama care is so vastly or grocery underestimated in terms of costs. i mean currently, the current budget window is $1.7 billion. when true spending kicks in $2.5 and that assumes only 1 million employees lose
